Learning to Run

My daughter, Mary, would like me to run with her on the first of May in a 5K run close to home here. I have done the 5K run-walks but never a run. I walk a mile on the treadmill. So I decided to up my speed. I walk at 3.5 for half a lap, run at 5.0 for a quarter lap, drop to 3.0 for a quarter lap to catch my breath, and then repeat. Hubby say "you only run for a quarter lap!" I am an old lady who has never run before! Today I got a leg cramp and walked the last lap and am limping a little because it still hurts.

I have tried running, but can't seem to stay motivated enough to stick with it. If I were in town the first of May, I would join you guys so I could cheer you on.
